About This Activity

The second of three races in the XTERRA TN points series.Help us to help Bays Mountain. You Need to Do This..It's not as Hard as you Think!! The 50k and Half marathon starts at 8:30am at beautiful Bays Mtn Park. This is an official XTERRA TRAIL RUN national Trail race and part of the Tennessee XTERRA series as well as the TRAILRUNNER MAGAZINE TROPHY SERIES. Fun, challenging, and exciting are all words that can describe an XTERRA race, and the Power to the Tower will certainly live up to that. Run Faster, we hear banjos....and that's exactly what you will hear as Bluegrass Music fills the mountains! Join us for refreshments and awards after the half marathon/50k!!
